Home School Association Mission Statement
St. Rose of Lima Academy relies upon the volunteer efforts of parents. Volunteering for Academy activities is part of every parent’s commitment. Parent volunteers are organized through the parent’s association, which is called the Home School Association, or H.S.A. The H.S.A. fundraises to provide supplemental programs for the students and faculty and to assist with the Academy budget. The H.S.A. organizes those fundraisers and supplemental programs, as well as social events for the Academy community. The H.S.A. Executive Board is responsible for overseeing all parent volunteer programs and committees and works with the Principal to achieve both its fundraising goals, community outreach and policy guidelines as they relate to extra-curricular activities. St. Rose of Lima Academy and the St. Rose of Lima H.S.A. strongly believe that involved parents are essential and set the tone of warmth and respect for Catholic values and academic growth that prevails at St. Rose.
2021–2022 Mandatory Volunteer Sign-up
Please add your name to our mandatory Volunter Signup list to lend a hand, which each family agreed to when they registered at SRLA. This signup breaks down the different volunteer opportunities at SRLA so parents can choose where they prefer to participate, or what works best with their schedule. Simply sign up each parent or guardian for whichever fundraising or volunteering event you'd like to be involved in for the 2021-22 school year. It's that simple! And, don't worry, all events are supported by the HSA so we will be there every step of the way!
Volunteering is a magical thing for our school community—we simply can't be SRLA without you! We also couldn't continue to grow and thrive as a school without the time, efforts, talents and contributions of each family. We have made beautiful friends, created new and enjoyable events, raised much needed funds, and brought forth exciting changes to our school. And, nothing beats the smiles on our children's faces when we volunteer at their school! So, grab a friend and help lead an event you love, or try something new! Think you are too busy? We have something for you! We appreciate all the different ways our families support SRLA!
NJ Executive Order Regarding Proof of Vaccination or Weekly Testing
Governor Murphy issued Executive Order No. 253 which requires school staff to either provide proof that they have been fully vaccinated, or submit to COVID-19 testing at a minimum of one to two times weekly. This Order also applies to all parent volunteers who enter the school or engage in any school activity involving the children. This requirement takes effect on October 18, 2021. Volunteers who have been fully vaccinated should submit proof to Danny and Mrs. Underwood. Those who are unvaccinated should submit proof of a COVID-19 test taken within the preceding week. All information will be kept confidential.
